Hm to me it seems easier to buy a W800 and wait an extra 6 seconds for the internet to load. hahahaha. =)
viperkid.. to my opinion, W800 and K750 looks and feels totally different, i can't even say that i am holding two of the same phone. It is only when you put them together, you can know that both are made of the same factor and similar design, but the feels are simply totally different. i believe the same will goes for W810. W810 has a better UI since it can have different style of menu browsing just like W550 and some improvement in software. So in W810 they have put not slightly but rather significant improvement (Netbrowser, EDGE, phonebook, and they put an additional function in the camera that enable to view brighter picture... dunno what they call it). Basically what i found from W810 is like the fullfilness of what W800 or K750 is lacking so far... 500 names in phonebook to 1000 names (same with most common phone) and especially EDGE---> I dunno how to use this and i actually don't really care whether my phone has this or not. Perhaps you can say slightly better improvement if you are talking about upgrading from K750 to W800, but W800 to W810 is totally different story. This phone will be released very very soon because the improvement is not that much as well although quite significant. K800 will be announced very soon, QVGA camera, bluetooth A2DP, 3MP and so on and so on...
well well well. i wonder how much this toy is gonna cost once it hits the market?
i guess SEK 4000 or USD 500 or maybe more. However, this phone is definitely for the TREND EXTREMISTS like myself.
yeah if dont mind being bulky can consider w900 cause it offer 30fps video n better screen cause QVGA. also bigger screen. got 3g nice swivel design....
Get this phone if u comparing between 800 n 810.. but if u want multi purpose wait for p990 it's a pda phone.
For 810 i'm sure there's some improvement in e user interface n sure e sound will be louder better. also maybe better video compare to 800. so does this help?
Get e W810 if u want louder music playback with e in-built speaker n better interface cause sony ericsson always come out with better interface. W800 if ur budget is e main concern.
Leave viperkid alone he just come here n disturb. thanks stirker n all those who supported SONY ERICSSON phones i'm too a great supporter of sony phones n i'm getting P990 soon when it's release n i'm sure that phone will make more ppl believe more in SONY products.
To me SONY always makes good phone cause there'll be improvement in any product coming out in e market. There's no cover for W810/W900 camera cause imo there's no need for a cover. It's well protected by a piece of glass.
Phone mem. abit low here but it's more then sufficent to store some ringtones then e rest of e files will go to e ext. mem stick.
Those who own S.E. phones will also realise that their sound quality(as in listening to music using e in-built speaker) is much superior than any phone in e market right now, u'll realise how clear it is in voice quality n effects. Yeah speaker for listening to normal conversation can get abit low here but it's acceptable to me.
Go for W810 if budget is tight to get W900 imo W810 will cost less then W900 cause it's in e 'middle' series of e W series phone. N surely it's a good quality phone~~!!!!
now guys, i dont know much about phones, but i know that you are taking it a bit too far, Nokia and SE are both the leading phone companies, u just cant normaly compare it, each company has it's own way of making phones! And if u both are really so smart, u should understand that phones are thinner every day, with new capabilities! No phone nowaday is made to last 10 years or something, every company changes with time, and about the camera, sure, nice to have a good camera on your phone, but if u want crystal clear pics, GET A REAL CAMERA! And just to clear things up, i'm not on Nokia side here, nor SE, I just care about the damn phones, a few weeks ago, i wanted the N80, but i like W810 better, and i didnt want to wait too long for N80 (Nokia anounces phones a bit too early). So pls, STOP spamming which company is better and leave each other alone!!!... So how does the W810 screen look like? :)
i think it will be da best phone in da whole history .. im jusy waiting it 2 come in da market
they should add a cover for the camera as it'll get dust over it if exposed. That's what i experienced with my SE K700i
viperkid- about the speakerphone i was just giving an example. w800 dropping is not of my concern anymore. if you are telling the truth about him dropping it from close range, then maybe it is just not supposed to be dropped, period.
about the phonebook we will have to wait and see. but you can ask that other dude who says that he has it.
Just a reminder-THIS IS THE W810 FORUM. if you want to talk about other phones then go to those forums. bring your comments good and bad but plz talk about the w810 not the w900. we have left the w900 forum behind so you can go talk to someone there and not bother us. but keep up the SIMON COWEL like comments
to VIPERKID and STRIKER- b professional, not personal. we are here to discuss phones. not how someone types and whether we like them or not. stop wasting valueable opportunities to argue about nonsence.
i hope W810 can change covers easily.
oops, my mistake. msg "2006-01-29 18:58 TSFk" is for Striker.
of course i know dat! well i bet u also know for sure Sony Ericsson is doing it too like releasing K750, W800, W810 with almost d same features only with minor differences and d fugly part almost same design! so as the P990, announced quite for some time now, still not out, oh well, look who's talking?? i don't think nokia fanatics have been duped already coz they know d upcoming models, unlike with SE released a model then after a few months a model with same feature with a bit more comes, now what happens to SE fanatics who bought K750, then W800 appeared they felt so tricked now that's what i call marketing strategy for PROFIT! i think ur biased, cuz u don't see ur favorite brand SE doing it, at least me i admitted dat's part of nokia's mktg strategy. im not lying to anyone, its kinda (again) d opposite! let me remind u, u said b4 and announced to everybody that SE had d first auto-focus function on a mobile phone then u found out later dat's its not true, and could not provide any link, (poor u) it was panasonic, and try to cover urself by saying 'at least here in UK' [a phrase like dat from u] but then u know we're talking about world's first, oh, now everybody, look who's lying!
re durability in nokia, well dat's ur opinion, i respect it. as d old saying "u can't please everybody" (nokia can't please u anymore) hahaha (i imitated ur rudeness there). never worry, remember ur wrong info about d first auto-focus thing in a mobile..? perhaps u almost had a heart attack then after being proven wrong, oh well.. back to ur msg, i never said sony is not a reputable brand name and can't guarantee decent quality, please watch ur mouth! read carefully, patiently & wisely wat i said, ok? again, u don't understand, i never used d word "associate" wat i used was "comparing" (r u blind?, u even pasted it..) and never told u or mentioned Sony does not equate to a reputable brand name and besides its not about reputable name in particular of my sentence i was reffering to there but clearly about how they set their price (again, ur LOST, OMG!) u said ur foolish, not me. maybe u should do d reality check bcoz ur so lost dude. i did not say d camera on W800 is a piece of junk right away, i said:
"if only a drop of (W800) [relatively not that high] and camera = piece of junk"
now, do u get it? again, what i was talking about there is d durability men and nothing to do with its quality or superbness of d images taken with W800 camera! u don't hav to tell me, i know for a fact SE cams is better than nokia's. now u tell me im stupid for giving a child a SE W800, well i just thought Sony Ericsson phones are that durable so i trusted to give my nephew one (im sure ur happy to hear im saying SONY Ericsson than SE alone Mr. Pedantic! even in reality for me, u, Ken2.5, TheOneDazz & Co., SE or SONY Ericsson are the same, oh dat idea of urs has no sense!). i don't find anything wrong about wat i said about u being a D600 user even u confirmed it that u became one and never said u chose D600 over W900 or this W810 i just said:
"dat's y u just apparently resorted to Samsung D600"
pls point to me y am i wrong saying that u became a D600 user! drink ur milk and sleep early ok, so maybe next tym u'll know finally wat r we talking about.
The W810 will be available on O2, no release date as yet however, but will possibly be within 2 months.
And Viperkid, as for your opinion of Nokia's announce-release policy - "they're doing it for us" ha ha ha ha ha awwwwww aren't Nokia just the sweetest and most considerable people???? Viperkid, do you really think they're doing it for the people? They do it for PROFIT. Its so they can appear ahead of their competition to whichever gullible goons will believe them. Remember, many moons ago when Nokia announced the "Ipod killing N91" This was seen as the benchmark. A music phone of the future. Since that announcement we've had the W800 released, the W900 announced and released, the ROKRs, the I300, and I'm sure we'll see the W810 before the N91 too. Nokia get their fanatics drooling over pictures of phones of the future and lie to them with a promise of "coming soon" then by the time they're released they're in line with the current market! The fanatics should then realise they've been duped yet they don't. They just part with their money while drooling over the next "coming soon" (N80 anyone???)
C'mon Viperkid, stop lying to everyone and yourself and admit you're biased towards Nokia. I'm man enough to say I'm biased towards SE - Too right I am. I like SE's phones, and I trust any manufacturuer who have Sony onboard. They don't mislead customers with empty promises, and every SE I've had has served me well. I can't stand Nokia and will not give them another penny of my money as long as I live. They've sold their client base down the river by going from a manufacturer of excellent durable quality phones to profit-hungry, customer-misleading, mass producers of dispasable rubbish with abysmal customer service. They dupe their customers into thinking they're still the Nokia of 10 years ago, but you show me 1 Nokia of today that'll still be going strong in 10 years. Like it or not Viperkid, they ain't what they used to be, so yeah, I'm biased against Nokia. So what? Thats my opinion, and even though you seem scared to admit you're biased too, you're just as much entitled to yopur opinion as I am.
But don't go lying about it while trying to disguise it as honest, unbiased advice cos its clearly not. Why are you even here, on the Sony ericsson forums when all you can do is praise Nokia and slate SE? You're here again and again and again, stirring up arguments with SE users, making personal, impolite and abusive remarks, Why???? Calm it down Viperkid.
Why don't you leave any posts on the forum of your beloved N80? I got to page 10 of that forum before I gave up looking for a post from you. So basically, you only come to GSMArena to come to the SE forums and stir up trouble. Go away Viperkid and come back when you grow up a little.
Jo & Viperkid:
Firstly, I couldn't agree more about the early Nokia phones. Amazingly durable, and yeah, some 10yr old Nokia models are still going today. Superb. But THIS is exactly the reputation Nokia have been riding on the back of ever since, and these 10yr old durable diamonds are why Nokia still sell as many phones as they do and why they are the No1 seller. Since the days of producing hard-wearing durable, functional mobile phones (When I was just as big a Nokia fan as you two), they've turned to mass-producing disposable rubbish. People DO still associate Nokia with the reliable, durable Nokia of yesteryear, but not me. They're just not the same company any more. Or at least the quality ain't there any more with the vast majority of their products, and we all know it.
Jo, you show me where you got the info that 5/10 SEs come with problems. I don't think you can. Yet the unbiased Viperkid calls your post "proof" ha ha ha ha whatever.
And Viperkid, Calm down fella you'll give yourself a heartattack. So, in you're usual polite, unbiased and friendly way, you said I'm wrong in saying that Sony is a reputable brand name and guarantees decent quality...erm, sorry, but you'll find I'm right on that one. oh, and I quote "how many times do i have to tell u this, stop comparing SE to Sony" ha ha ha ha Viperkid are you winding me up???? Say the following 2 words out loud: SONY Ericsson. Say it again Viperkid - SONY Ericsson. So, you tell me not to associate Sony with SE, you tell me Sony doesn't equate to a reputable brand name, you give a W800 (one of the best cameraphones available) to a child who drops it and wonder why the auto-focus gets broken, yet I associate Sony with SE and I'm the foolish one???? Reality check Viperkid.
The camera on the W800 is not "a piece of junk". You'll see from this GSMarena review http://www.gsmarena.com/review.php3?idReview=46&idPage=2 that the W800,K750,W900 & W810 camera beats the Nokia "flagship Carl Zeiss blah blah blah" camera hands down. So don't come here telling people who want unbiased advice that SE's are bad because you had the stupidity to give one to a child who broke it. And you're wrong about another thing. I became a D600 user as that was the best and most valuable handset available free of charge on my network's contract upgrade. I'd had my S700i for over a year and wanted to change it. I knew I'd get good money for the D600 on Ebay when the W900 was released. Then the W810 came along and yeah, although the screen is disappointing to me, this is what I reckon I'll have next. So there's an insight into my personal life for you viperkid, showing that yet again, you do not have a single clue what your talking about-so STOP making assumptions about people who you know nothing about ok?
